Pay Your Marie Murphy Room Fees Online
Each year, winter holiday and end-of-year gifts are provided to teachers, staff, bus drivers, and facilities staff on behalf of all MM students and families. The funds from these room fees are used to show appreciation for our MM team.

We suggest a $25 donation for each child you have at Marie Murphy. To make a payment, register or log in to your account at the Membership Toolkit here. Once you are logged in, use the left sidebar menu to navigate to "Marie Murphy" and pay your fees. Thank you for your support! 

8th Grade Car Wash Fundraiser

PTC Membership Dues
The PTC is collecting annual membership dues, which are $25 for the 2022-2023 school year. As with every year, paying your dues will give you access to the directory of district families and help fund the different community-building events we host.

Cash, check, PayPal, and credit card via the Membership Toolkit app are accepted. To pay for dues via a credit card or PayPal, click here. If you wish to pay via cash or check, please remit to "Avoca PTC" (memo: Membership Dues) and drop it off at your school's front office.

This year, the PTC will be handing out car magnets to every dues-paying member during the Marie Murphy and Avoca West Parent Nights! There will be other opportunities to get magnets outside of those days. Questions? Contact Ann Heinz, the PTC's Director of Membership at [email protected]

Our New Mission, Strategic Plan, & Portrait of a Graduate 
Avoca has started the new school year with a new Mission Statement, a set of values that define our work with and for students embodied in the Portrait of a Graduate, and a new Strategic Plan that prioritizes our most important actions in the coming years. Throughout the year, Dr. Osburn will share the details of the work involved and delve into the various aspects of each in his Superintendent's Corner newsletters. Check your email today for the latest issue!

The Sesquicentennial Planning Committee and the Village of Wilmette are excited to announce “THE Wilmette Block Party” to celebrate Wilmette’s 150th Birthday on September 10 in the Village Center. The day will be packed with a parade, musical entertainment, featured performances, great food, kids' activities, and more.

The Avoca choir, strings, and orchestra students will be performing, too!: 
  • 1:15-1:45 p.m. - Avoca West Choir
  • 3:30-3:50 p.m. - Avoca West Elementary Strings
  • 4:15-4:45 p.m. - Marie Murphy Orchestra

Come celebrate Wilmette's anniversary and support our students who will be highlighting for the community one of the best elementary choir and music programs in Illinois!
